Moi University lecturers, on Monday, October 25, went to the streets to raise concerns over their delayed salaries.

The lecturers claim that all members of the teaching staff had not been paid since July 2021.

"Just like the lecturers, the university's farmworkers are also demanding the university to pay them their salaries that have accumulated for 13 months," a unionist at the institution told the media.

The lecturers have now vowed to never go back to class until they are paid their salaries in full.

They said that there have on several occasions tried to seek an audience with the University's Vice-Chancellor Prof Isaac Sanga Kosgey over the matters but all have been in vain. They blame the University's top management for their woes.

Thie current strike comes at a time when the institution of higher education is having financial difficulties.

In February this year, the lecturers were also on the road demonstrating over salary delays. They also demanded the institution pay them their 2020 salary arrears before they extend their contracts.
